Tornado site investigation by Paul Sherman...

Site Investigation Conducted 9am 15th November 2009 - Benfleet Essex

I walked the entire length of the Tornado track this morning and found it to be about 1/2 Mile in Length, the damage path was no more than 50yds at it's widest. The 1st Damage was picked up near the Vicarage on Rushbottom Lane and this was quite light damage to trees, the next damage was fence panels down near Overton Road, after this the Tornado strengthened and widened to it's maximum point of about 50 yards as it hit Arundel Road (1st Pic) The Lawns (Pic 2) and the Most extensive damage in the Fairway (Pic 3,4 & 5) More Chimneys and tiles loose along Seamore Avenue and Eversley Road before the Tornado once again strengthened as it hit Fairview Crescent, the Tornado looks like it dissipated along Moreland Avenue. The Track of this Tornado was directly NE Along the entire time it was on the ground. I have spoken with many different residents including John Sullivan who lives at No 1 Fairway where the most extensive damage was and he is E-Mailing me his account later. I firmly believe this Storm dropped a further Tornado to the NE as per the previous poster stating damage in South Woodham Ferriers as I saw the occlusion above my head and lost the funnel descending into the rain to my North.

Some pictures for you all and I will leave it to the Torro Boys to determine the Strength of this event from the Pictures, my initial thoughts are T1 to T2 In strength.
